Yes it will go away. The oil, depending on how much there is, will burn off fairly quickly. The more you drive, the faster it will finish.

The more likely symptom for white smoke from exhaust is piston rings are worn out . Due to this there might be oil leakage and engine oil which is meant for engine lubrication might have entered the combustion chamber. Burning of engine oil produces white smoke. You should quickly change the piston rings as if you ignore this problem this can cause engine mal-functioning

Failure to start. then will start next day. Mazda said it was fuel pump. They replaced $790.00. did not resolve problem. they kept 2 days and said it was battery. Replaced. @ weeks later same problem.

Well, they probably did put on either a bad fuel pump or should've done the relay.There is also a fuel pump REGULATOR that can cause a lot of trouble. Make them keep at it,since their work should be warranteed when they say they've fixed it. don-ohio

Hi, I have a 1994 Toyota camry, and it seems to loose a lot of power and won't speed up, and also kinda "bunny hops" when taking off. These things do not happen everytime I drive it although it...

You say no one can find the problem. I take this to mean you have had mechanics try to fix it?. Have you had the engine computer scanned for codes? There are definitely trouble codes stored. If not from the initial problem, then from disconnecting the sensors in an effort to stop the problem. It could be anything from bad catalytic converter to misfiring spark plugs. Get the scan done and let us know what codes come up. From there, we can diagnose the problem and figure out what needs to be done to help you.

I dont know where cirtain hoses go, i have a 1994 Ford probe with a mazda mx-6 motor, where does the hose from the fuel filter go? Does it go to the carb, and if yes. where?

94 ford probe does not have carb. it is fuel injection. that hose from fuel filter goes to the fuel rail on engine. if it is a vacuum hose it should go to the fuel regulator also on fuel rail.hope this helps

The car is sputtering at high rpm

Hello, I would change the fuel filter especially if it's never been changed to your knowledge and if the car runs great up untill 4200rpms. If the filter is starting to plug then it will fell boggy and possibly jerky because the motor is being starved for fuel.
